Orlando STI Testing And Inclusive Medical Care: What Makes Us Different
Here at Hope & Help, we have the Orlando STI testing and the inclusive medical care you’re looking for! Here’s why we’re your healthcare home.
You’re not alone if you’ve ever come to a doctor’s office because you weren’t feeling well or needed care, only to feel unwelcome, judged, or discriminated against. A recent study found that one in four LGBTQ+ people experienced discrimination from their healthcare providers. At the same time, 8% of lesbian, gay, or bisexual adults and 29% of transgender adults reported that a healthcare provider had refused to see them because of their sexual orientation or gender identity.
That’s not ok! And you won’t find that here. Whether you come to us for Orlando STI testing or another healthcare need, we’re right here to support you!

We Make Orlando STI Testing Easy
To really make healthcare for everyone, it has to be accessible to everyone! That’s why we have STI and HIV testing that’s completely free. That includes rapid tests for:

These rapid tests give you results in less than 15 minutes. We also have more extensive STI testing if you choose! Our Health Educators will be available during and after your test, so you’re always connected to the best resources.
We Have the Best Support Groups
Not only are our support groups caring, safe, educational, and confidential, they make you a part of a fantastic community. All of our groups are free from cost, include a complimentary meal, and are held right here at our clinic! Need a ride? No problem. Our group leaders can connect you with transportation assistance to get you to and from our groups.
Our support groups include:
- RE-START: A Bi-weekly meetup for people living with HIV. This group is available to anyone, regardless of HIV status!
